Is there no way to dump the list of available measuring values and locations to a text file so it can be reviewed while not in the car with the ignition on?
Yes, with a current interface you can make maps using Controller Channel Map function found in Applications.

Sorry, another wonder about Adv Meas Values. For a UDS engine module, do the descriptions presented come from the engine module, or from Ross-Tech? Ie, if I find a description confusing, are we all in the same boat of "who knows what the Audi eng was thinking", or would it be a question to Ross-Tech about why they used the text presented?
The descriptions come from VAG and/or their control module suppliers.

Ross Tech has included several helpful profiles as well.

Enjoy.
Please could someone help locate these files?
The only ones available are those I've written.

Those are located in C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS\Scaling by default. If you have VCDS installed in another location you'd need to check that folder.

Thank you for your advice.
Found files in C:\Ross-Tech\VCDS\Scaling; files do not appear to be available as suggested at the end of Jef's thread #1.
Assume First number = Group and Second number = Block Number ... certainly much easier than my method of entering each location.
Also enables interpretation and relationship to Advance Measuring Values examples available on YouTube.
Regards and Thanks
Brian.

Is there any way to add more than 12 values to measure? and why is there this limitation?

No, there isn't.

The limitation is in part due to the code that was originally written to support three groups measuring blocks, each of which consisted of four items and increasing it was not deemed terribly useful due to the the fact that that the sample rate would drop further the more items are being read.

One option, is to use [Controller Channel Map] in [Applications].
You get all measurement values in a log file.

Do I understand it correctly, That when VCDS connects to a car with a controller that support UDS, the car can tell VCDS what measuring values that are possible to read out, the scaling and the units for the data (bar, deg C, rpm etc) Is that correct? Or is that information inside files in VCDS?

VCDS knows what measuring values a module might support. When you make a map, VCDS will query those. The map will then show which ones the module actually supports.

Okay, Specifically, my question is, If I want to make a software to connect to my own ID.3 and I find a lot of measurement values with VCDS that I want to read out, is there any easy way to find out more specific information about that value in VCDS, or am I forced to sniff the VCDS-ID.3 communication to see it?

I want to extract some values to be able to use them for a online planning software.

Sorry, we are not here to help other people make software that does things that VCDS already does.

You should probably re-read the very short license agreement that VCDS comes with.
